Designing a website from top to bottom and down to the minutest detail without writing a line of code is no more than a dream that will never come true. Or is it? The Elementor team thought otherwise, and from the initial release right up through Elementor 2.0 they’ve proved it’s not a dream, or if it is, it has come true.
With Elementor 2.0 they’ve created the ultimate WordPress website builder solution; one in which you can design headers, footers, and everything else you can think of without writing a single line of code.
Everything you do on Elementor is done with clicks, not code.
It’s hardly surprising that in less than 2 years Elementor amassed a following of 900,000+ loyal users.
- Why Elementor?
The thinking behind this #1 theme builder was to solve a major problem for web designers; the problem of feeling unnecessarily constrained, or “stuck” in a theme’s design. A theme can offer a variety of features, but there are always limits, and designers are pretty good at finding them.
Elementor WordPress theme builder offers website-building professionals the freedom to create websites the way they want, without having to start a project from scratch and without having to write code. This theme builder allows you to design everything right on the frontend, where you can view the results instantly, and where you have total control over customizing your layouts.
The solution the team came up with wasn’t quite complete however, so they made additions and improvements that you’ll see in Elementor 2.0. Only one of these additions has yet to be released, but that’s not far off and users are more than impressed with the others.
- A Quick Look at the Newest Elementor Features
Limitations? None. You can Design Your Blog the Way You’ve Always Wanted
The new Single and Archive building feature lets you design your blog to look exactly like you’ve imagined it should. You can do so lightning fast, and exercise full control over your building activities as you do it. This feature also helps you optimize your workflow without negatively impacting flexibility or quality.
Another thing you can do is customize the Single Post and Blog Archive features to add some special elements to your blogs to give them added personality. Yet another option is to design a Search Results page that makes it easy for a user to find precisely what they’re looking for.
Have You Tried Designing Your Own Headers and Footers without Code? You Can Now
With Elementor’s new Header and Footer feature and visual editor, you no longer must rely on choosing from several options to get what you want. Now, you can customize the header and footer areas to get exactly what you want. If you’ve ever built a toy house from building blocks, you’ll understand just how simple building headers and footers can be.
You don’t need to have the same headers on every page either, and you can even use the sticky header option that follows users down the page, making it easier for them to navigate.
Create Dynamic Content for a More Creative Blog
New releases like Single Post & Page allow you to apply a template you’ve designed as many times as you want on an endless series of blog posts and pages. Insofar as designing your blog is concerned, the Blog Archive feature lets you visually create it piece by piece – naturally without coding.
Create a 404 template? Customize your Search Results Page? Create a single post template? All of these are easy with Elementor’s Featured Image, Post Title, Author Box, and other dynamic widgets.
Reuse Content as Much as You Like
The nicest thing about dynamic content is that once you’ve designed it, you can use it over and over again. It’s simply a matter of creating a framework for your content and applying it across your website; often with a single click.
It used to be that the tiniest change in a template required delving into code. That’s no longer the case with dynamic content.
- Why Elementor is the #1 WordPress Page Builder
Elementor 2.0’s design team made sure they kept the first version’s popular and amazing features when they set out to make Elementor even more flexible and powerful. When you’re already #1, as more than 900,00 users attested to, you don’t want to mess things up.
Four reasons for Elementor’s current 900,000-strong user base:

An Impressive Template Library
You’re bound to be impressed with Elementor’s comprehensive selection of beautiful pre-designed templates that cover a range of industries, styles, and specific needs and niches.
